This last week has been very hot and humid but we have been treated since last night to something we haven't seen in what seems like ages - rain!! After a 40 degree day and our hottest March night (30 degrees) since records began it was wonderful to see :-)
And also fun to see is the new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week I had the pleasure of suggesting the colour combo for us all to use. The design team have created beautiful cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to go and take a peek.
Here are the colours:
And here is my card:
The idea I had was to attempt to create a water coloured sunset. Sometimes the clouds of a sunset really set off the sky behind and that was my inspiration.
The water colouring was done with some Rich Razzleberry ink on water colour paper and then I trimmed the paper and sunburst framelit together using the stitched rectangle die to add a little interest and definition. That is carried through in the dotty stamps on the rays - each stamped off once - and the birthday sentiment. I fussy cut the hello and added with some dimenionals before covering with a light layer of Wink of Stella for a surprise of sparkle at sunset :-)
